How we can get rid of your scar tissue

Whether you're affected by acne scarring, or you have post-operative scar tissue you'd like to reduce or remove, we have a treatment for you.

Our laser therapies are highly targeted.

When to get laser therapy for scarring

If you've experienced acne and now have residual scarring from the flare-ups, or have suffered an injury requiring surgery, you're a candidate for laser therapy.

Scars don't receive melanin, which is responsible for skin pigmentation. As a result, they can burn more easily and suffer UV damage — even more reason to get laser therapy to remove your scar tissue.

Our lasers

Fraxel Dual laser

Using a patented fractional technology, the Fraxel dual laser safely penetrates superficial skin layers, and stimulates natural collagen growth.

Skin needling

The M-Pen creates tiny punctures, usually less than millimetres, on your skin. This causes a healing reaction in your skin cells, so new collagen and elastin forms.

Vivace RF Infini

Combining fractional radiofrequency technology with microneedling, Vivace RF uses heat and incisions to encourage collagen growth and tighten the skin in one painless procedure.

Vbeam Prima

The Vbeam Prima uses two wavelengths of 595 nm and 1064 nm to target blood vessels. It's a non-invasive procedure, with minimal downtime, and it's virtually pain-free.

How to prepare for scar removal

There will be different preparation instructions depending on the treatment you'll be receiving. In your initial consultation, we'll tell you what needs to be done pre-treatment. For most of our treatments, no matter which technology we use, you'll need to:

  • Avoid sun exposure and fake tanning for one month prior to treatment
  • Cleanse your skin, and ensure you're not wearing hairspray, perfume, or after-shave on the day of your treatment
  • Avoid waxing your hair, or using a depilator

How to take care of your skin post-treatment

Again, it depends on which treatment you receive. But, in most cases, you'll need to wear sunscreen daily. It's important to protect your renewed skin cells from sun damage. If you receive laser therapy, you'll want to use a cold compress immediately after treatment to reduce any potential swelling.

Medical-grade lasers

Safe and non-invasive

Virtually pain-free

Will getting my scars removed hurt?

Our scar removal therapies are non-invasive and virtually pain-free. You may feel slightly uncomfortable while receiving a skin needling or laser treatment, but we can apply a topical numbing cream to reduce any uncomfortable sensations. If you're very concerned about pain, we can test a small section of your skin to see how your body reacts prior to treatment.

Does it matter how old my scars are?

No. We can reduce the appearance of all scars.

How soon can I get rid of a scar?

We can treat post-surgical scars as soon as the stitches have been removed, or the scar has fully healed over. Acne scarring can be treated once the acne is under control.

Are there any side effects to laser scar removal?

You may experience a small change in the pigment of your skin post-treatment, but this will go away in time. And your skin may be red, and itchy immediately after your session, but you can apply a cold compress, and this will reduce any negative side effects.

"Something was missing"

Despite taking regular care of her skin, Shani Timms has struggled with acne flare-ups and scarring. She says, "I am a strong believer that diet and lifestyle play a big part in acne maintenance, but something was still missing." After reaching out to our clinic, we formulated a treatment plan for her and, 10 months later, her skin has never been better.
